TechWave Now Claims 75 Software Marketers as Customers

Seattle-based TechWave Inc., an electronic commerce software and distribution company, said that more than 75 new software publishers are now using TechWave's patent-pending Digital Container technology for electronic software distribution (ESD).

Companies such as Design Intelligence, Installshield, Intuit, and McAfee are among the companies working with TechWave to market and sell their software products securely over the Internet and commercial online networks.

In addition, these 75 client companies have agreed to sell their products through TechWave's Electronic Commerce Distribution Network of more than 50 online stores.

TechWave's Digital Container is a secure software mechanism that travels with digital content during a download. It gives software publishers, digital content providers, distributors, and resellers added flexibility because it doesn't just "wrap" products for a single download or purchase.

Instead, it communicates to a server to enforce business rules such as dynamic pricing, dynamic marketing, and methods for secure online buying, try-before-you-buy, rentals and subscriptions.
